Simple sequence repeats (SSRs), one of the most powerful molecular markers, can be used for DNA fingerprinting, variety identification, genetic mapping, and marker-assisted selection. Using the pear’s (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai) 75,764 unigenes (55,676,271 bp) obtained by deep transcriptome sequencing, a total of 10,622 novel SSRs were identified in 9154 unigenes, accounting for 14.02% of all unigenes. The average length and distribution of these SSRs was about 16 bp and 5.24 kb, respectively.
